Green and Blue Eyeliner in Italy
I’m noticing something about the fashion and makeup here in Italy.
For starters, I see quite a few women, of various ages, wearing blue or green eyeliner — at least in this northeastern region. I can’t speak for all of Italy.
I also see more high-waist pants and jeans on women, and men wearing tight-ish jeans rolled up higher than ankles. I haven’t convinced Greg to do it yet, but clearly we’re the Americani if we don’t.
From middle-aged bank teller to senior citizen
The bank teller who took my first deposit was wearing green eyeliner and no other makeup. Later, I saw a much older woman doing the same. Just a line of color either on the top or lower lash line, and that’s it. No mascara, no lipstick or blush. No blending.
I didn’t have a picture of it but I looked online and found this. Although this model featured below has it on top and bottom, the point is to show you the green eyeliner with brown eyes I’m seeing in Italy. It’s similar to this.
Mother Knows Best
Apparently my mom knew what she was doing when she ordered those colors for me before I left. Because I never would’ve. Thanks, mom! This could help me fit in… so long as I don’t speak, I look the part. ;)
However, I’m not sure I can pull off the green eyeliner. I tried and couldn’t get into it. At least not yet.
